Christ centered yoga for every “body”!

What to expect in a typical class?

A Yin yoga class usually consists of a series of long-held, passive floor poses that mainly work the lower part of the body—the hips, pelvis, inner thighs, lower spine. These areas are especially rich in connective tissues. In a Yin yoga class, the poses are held for up to five minutes and possibly longer.

Leslie can adapt poses to chairs if attendees are unable to sit on the floor.

Yin yoga is almost entirely passive, although some Yin asanas contain some Yang elements. During the asanas, muscles are relaxed to avoid muscle spasm, which could result from engaging muscles for long periods.

During this program, prayer, poetry, and Christian imagery will be shared as students hold poses. This will allow for the  body, mind and spirit to integrate.

Final mediation will allow students to reflect on the power of Christ in their lives while integrating the movement into their bodies.
